Ohhhh exciting times! Very Happy

Now we'll know for sure whether or not it's some of your custom stuff that causes the crashing.

But fingers crossed it works perfectly!!

Good news again!!

What kind of weird? Distorted and fuzzy or zoomed in too far and not fitting the screen?
Maybe you need to adjust the screen resolution? I had to do that when I got my new laptop a couple of weeks ago.
To do that, go to the options menu and in the graphics options menu there will be a drop down list of screen resolutions. Try those until your screen looks right, then save the settings :)

try checking for updates on your drivers. you can do this by.

start menu, Control Panel, Hardwear and Sounds, Device Manager, Double left click with your mouse on Display Adapters. then right click on the driver. mine is called ( Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 SE ) yours will be something like this. right click on it and it will open a small window will open. click on Properties, And a second window will open. then click on Drivers and then update drivers and click on ok. this will search for updates for you Graphics Card. hope this helps. :)

You've done it right! haha it's just saying you're all up to date so there's nothing you can do in terms of updating your drivers.

Basically you have an unsupported graphics card, which could cause problems, so the game has automatically set your graphics as high as your computer can take, but if you start having lag or if the graphics are getting too bad just turn down the settings in the graphics options menu and it should sort it out :)

Then I suppose you can just ignore the message when it pops up haha!
If it starts misbehaving then just turn down the settings, but for now you're all good to go! Very Happy

Hmmm, it depends when it's happening etc... I've got lots of questions for you!

Is it just a completely blank screen? No flickering or moments where you can see the game?

Can you hear the music or game sounds playing in the background?

Does it load at all or is that all you get from the start?

If it's doing that at some point during game play is there something in particular that you do before it goes blank?

If it's doing it from the game is there anything that happened that you can think of when it started happening or was it just totally random?

If you're able to play the game for a while before it happens, does the game crash or lag before it goes blank or is it just shutting off completely?

That's lots of questions lol sorry hun but the more I ask the more I can narrow down what it could be.

Hmmmm scratch I have to confess I'm stumped.

Lets see if we can work through it by process of elimination lol! I'll give you a couple of suggestions to try first.

We'll check it's not your custom content or mods. That's always the best place to start with strange errors.
So, move your Mods folder away from your Sims 3 folder and keep it somewhere safe like your Desktop, and disable custom content in the installed items tab of the launcher.
Try it! ... let me know what happens. If it's fixed we can work forward in terms of finding which cc it was that caused it.

If it makes no difference we'll test to see if it's your game or the launcher that's causing it.

To do that lets see if we can get the game to load properly when we bypass the launcher.

To do this, go to your Sims 3 folder in your Program Files (if you have a 64bit system it'll be in Program Files (x86) )
You need to find The Sims 3\Game\Bin - and inside there you'll find a TS3 Application executable file (which is just called 'TS3' and has the sims 3 icon)
Double click on it to start the game without using the launcher and let me know if it works without the blank screen

(if you need more info on finding the TS3 application file then let me know!)
